Last June the good people of Sacramento rose up to defend their community against a white supremacist rally at the state capitol. They were able to run the bigots off, but not without casualties on our side. The bad news, however, is that the neo-nazis weren’t above stabbing people en masse and sent nine antifascists to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
If this sounds familiar, it could be because we already donated money to help our injured friends back in July. So why are we bringing this up again? It’s because one of our friends was hurt far badly than the other eight and as a result, had a longer stay in hospital, more medical interventions done to save their life, and as a result of all of that, has incurred much higher medical expenses than originally anticipated.
This is why we made another donation more recently to help pay for those medical expenses. No one who literally puts their life on the line to shut down neo-nazis should be left on the hook for subsequent medical expenses.
If you feel the same way we do, you can contribute directly to our friend’s medical costs here or you can make a donation to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund so that we’re able to help out in a significant way the next time an anti-fascist or anti-racist is hurt because they stood up to hate.
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON!
